5.0 out of 5 stars Their music ALWAYS matters..., 11 Oct. 2015
This review is from: Faithless 2.0 (Audio CD)
Well I am amazed, I have to admit - although I'd have preferred a new album, to get anything from Faithless considering they did the 'Pass The Baton' gigs a few years back and we thought that was the end of an era...well, this is a welcome surprise.

CD1 - mixed - remixes of many classic tracks, more info on them in a moment.
CD2 - the classics in their original format.

Highly recommended that you purchase the CD version as you get the MP3 for free which includes each track unmixed from CD1 and therefore represents excellent value for money.

Onto the tracks...

CD1 (remixes)
1 - DJ mix at roughly 1h20mins - all the remixes in order in one continuous track. Great for having on at the gym, whilst driving, etc.
2 - Insomnia - nowhere near as bad as many people have made out, just different that's all, but I personally like it.
3 - We Come 1 - pretty heavy remix of this amazing tune, love this remix!
4 - God is a DJ - builds and builds really well, but the main hook is a bit of a let-down sadly.
5 - Muhammad Ali - nice bit of drum & bass, like this, totally different to the original.
6 - Salva Mea - huge fan of Above & Beyond here so this remix is perfection in my mind, beautiful and uplifting, a personal favourite.
7 - Not Going Home - quite similar to the original, just with a heavier beat and extra synths, nice all round.
8 - Music Matters - the Axwell remix which was on the CD release a few years back, not bad but a bit repetitive for me.
9 - I Was There - a new track, very old school, I absolutely love it, nice to have a new track on this release.
10 - Miss U Less, See U More - very different from the original, a mellow yet uplifting remix, nice beat and piano break too.
11 - Tarantula - almost a dub with very little in the way of vocals, laidback, chilled out beat, perfect to relax to.
12 - Bombs - very similar to the original, but with more of a beat, another chilled out remix. Love this.
13 - Drifting Away - worth the price for this remix alone in my opinion, a great build up to the beat kicking in at 2 minutes, best on here for me!
14 - Don't Leave - completely different from the original, unrecognisable in fact, not the best on this album in my humble opinion, disappointing.
15 - Insomnia - radio edit of the Avicii remix, same as track 2 above, but shorter.

CD 2 (originals)
1 - Insomnia - words not required, the ultimate club anthem in its entirety. Perfection.
2 - Mass Destruction - a storming classic, never ages.
3 - God is a DJ - same as Insomnia, another anthem in its entirety. Amazing.
4 - Don't Leave - chilled out, beautiful, ideal for a summer afternoon on the beach.
5 - Muhammad Ali - not a fan of this one really, but not too bad I guess.
6 - We Come 1 - the radio edit, would have preferred the original mix but this is still a superb track, another dance anthem.
7 - Reverence - almost 8 minutes of perfection, so atmospheric, reminds me of my 90s day out clubbing, love it.
8 - Salva Mea - 10 minutes 50 seconds of bliss, can't get enough of this tune.
9 - One Step Too Far - nice, chilled out, melodic beats, Dido's great vocals...pleasant.
10 - Bring My Family Back - very moving, chilled out, slow track.
11 - Tarantula - original mix, no editing here, storming.
12 - Bombs - so haunting, especially the opening line on the answerphone...this gets to me without fail every time. Another favourite of mine.
13 - Feelin' Good - nice dance track, but a bit repetitive for me towards the end.
14 - Not Going Home - radio edit of another brilliant track from this awesome band.

So, £9.99 (currently) for all of the above? Bargain - snap it up, reminisce about the past with disc 2 then blast out the remixes which bring a whole new side to them all - highly recommended! Thank you Faithless! Can't wait to see you in November at Ally Pally - the best live act out there!

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute rubbish - read loads of great reviews on here, 3 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolute rubbish - read loads of great reviews on here, so maybe I was unlucky, but this made the most unbelievable noise when I first used it, wouldn't quieten down despite me trying everything it said (turning the screw-type bit, etc.) and pulled at my hair instead of cutting it.

To be avoided at all costs - sent back instantly and a full refund was credited to my account, so at least Amazon did the right thing unlike Babyliss. Would never buy a Babyliss product again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing track, but error with Amazon's listing - there are 3 versions of this song, not 4!, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't fault the track, a return to form in my opinion and the remixes are superb! However, if you buy the MP3 version of the remixes, please note you do NOT get the radio edit as is stated on Amazon's description of this bundle. You get the 3 remixes only.

Hope that helps!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain of the year!!!, 16 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trance Top 100 (MP3 Download)
Wow! I thought it was a mis-print but apparently now. £1.79 for 100 quality trance tunes?! Insane! I thought i'd risk it even though i hadn't heard of any of the tracks/artists, and i'm so glad i did. Most over 6 minutes in length, plus an hour long DJ mix which is pumping. Proper old school hands in the air stuff this, you won't regret downloading it!

I still can't believe the price for such quality trance tunes - if you're like me and have been longing for some tracks that take you away, melodic, pumping, anthemic, pure trance classics like they used to be before cheesy vocals took over, then this is the download of the year for you my friends.

Get it before the price increases and spread the word!

Amazon, THANK YOU! You've made me a very happy person today! :)
